I am trying to remove the old suspension, but I can't get the tie bar off.... I used a rubber mallot, and nothing, it didnt even budge.... Anyone care to help or give ideas?

Thanks

If you are talking about the tie rod end, just go to Kragen and rent their 'pitman arm tool'. Doesn't cost anything, although you will have to lay down a $100 deposit. It attaches to the ball joint and pops it right off.

I installed an A-spec suspension last weekend and it worked like a charm.

Ditto on Kragon, ditto on the A-Spec suspension.

BTW, you're going to be turning a threaded rod on the tool with a wrench in order to separate the ball joint. A lot of tension builds up and I was completely surprised at how loud and...what...violent it was when it finally popped. So be prepared.
